Die pleistozäne Vereisung und ihre isostatischen Auswirkungen im Bereich des Bellsunds (West-Spitzbergen)

Gerhard Stäblein
The pleistocene ice-sheet of c. 400—800 m in the Bellsund-area can be proved with the geomorphological analyses. The ascending of the ice-scour limit eastwards and the trough-valleys pointing to E prove a movement of ice-sheet from the E in the main-glacial period. At the exit of the fjord a second, lower ice-scour limit can be seen at about 120 m as a well marked ice-scour terrace inclined to W from the late-glacial time. The present...
